The DuPage Symphony Orchestra's February, 2012 subscription concert opens with John Williams' Liberty Fanfare, a piece written in 1986 to celebrate the centennial of the Statue of Liberty on July 4 of that year. Antonín Dvořák's Symphony No. 9 in E minor Op. 95 "From the New World" provides a rich, familiar centerpiece, while Peter Boyer's dramatic Ellis Island: The Dream of America tells the tale of seven immigrants who came to the United States through Ellis Island in hopes of a better life in the new world.
